Defence Connect Podcast

After serving as an army captain in Afghanistan, Jason Scanes was under the impression that his interpreter would be granted a special protection visa to join him in Australia.

Five years later, frustrated with the lack of transparency around the status of the application, Scanes founded Forsaken Fighters to support other veterans and mission essential personnel in similar positions.

In this episode of the Defence Connect Podcast, Scanes joins host Phil Tarrant to talk about why his not-for-profit organisation is so critical for those who have served, the psychological implications around this issue of moral injury, and how the application process could be improved.
